A Polish company has launched a meeting room product that uses Android for the operating system and then takes the smart step of integrating beacons.
Called Schedulla, a play on Godzilla, the tablet-centric platform has a simple CMS that allows users to pick a room, pick a date, describe, and invite participants. The system syncs with Google Calendar or Exchange.
By integrating with beacons, the set-up gives spatial context and allows people with smartphone apps to figure out where the heck the meeting room is located.
The company has both perpetual and perpetual licensing arrangements, and also does custom work.
That brings to 14 the number of options (that we know about) for meeting room signs.
